The Larnaca search and coordination centre JRCC received information about the man at around 10.20am.

The centre immediately activated the national special search and rescue plan Nearchos, mobilising a port police vessel as well as an ambulance.

After the diver, who had suffered pulmonary oedema was rescued, he was transferred via ambulance to Larnaca general hospital for further treatment.
